Nicole Chouinard

Manager of Evidence-Based Programs

Nicole joined ACS in 2015 and has held several roles since that time, including direct care and Child Services Coordinator. She has a heart for individuals with special needs and those with mental illness. Her passion for serving the diverse needs of our population largely is due to her own non-verbal, special-needs child.  Nicole believes that everyone has an equal voice, whether they can be heard or understood.  In her free time, Nicole enjoys being with her family and friends in Florida and NC and being an active cheerleader in the lives of her children.
